While most latte artists around the world would explore different techniques on how to make illustrations on milk, Maxim Stick adopted the intricate, edible stencil work as the medium for a stop-motion animation, playing out the quirky days of young love for a ‘coffee couple’, who meet, fall in love and grow old together.
Layered with cocoa powder and rich, foamy milk, the cups of coffee find their way around the frame, setting the story in motion though their careful placement meticulously drawn expressions. A team of artisans have worked with 1,000 individually hand-drawn illustrations from faces and furry critters to hearts and winter hats to make up the ‘Latte Motion Project’.
